About the Author

Don Malarkey was born in 1921 and grew up in Astoria, Oregon. He was drafted in 1942 and spent more consecutive days in combat than any other member of E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne Division—the most recognized fighting unit in American history. Today he lives in Oregon.

Bob Welch is a nationally recognized author and journalist whose book American Nightingale, about the first nurse to die in World War II after the landings at Normandy, was featured on ABC's Good Morning America and was an Oregon Book Award finalist. He lives in Oregon.

Just another well written first person view of the war to end all wars. Don Malarky does an excellent job depicting life, and death, of the combat hero before they were hereoes. How a bunch of average kids from around the country became such an elite unit of soldiers is unbelievable in today's society but then this group wasn't from today's society. They are the last great generation. There will never be another one like them.

What I enjoyed about this book the most was how it caputured pre and post war life for Sgt Malarkey. I found it interesting to read about what led to his decision to join the paratroopers. I was also astonished to read about how he dealt with the loss of so many of his comrades.
